(It started by) joining the club. We do this just for fun.
What’s your favorite part of playing?
Companionship, fun and camaraderie.
What’s the most difficult aspect or the most frustrating?
It’s not hard, it’s just fun. Sometimes the unevenness of the ground makes it hard. If you hit a big divot, then it can push the ball off track.

Sarasota Yacht Club.
What is the breakfast of champions?
Omelets with cheese and ham.
If you could play bocce ball with any person dead or a live, who would it be and why?
Abe Lincoln, because I admire him.
